Cookie Program Happening NOW!!!!
Just because the initial order is over, doesn't mean girls have to stop selling cookies!!! After delivery, additional orders can be filled through the cookie cupboards. Cookie sales tip of the week: Take additional boxes when delivering your cookies! Customers who already purchased some might want more, but better yet, people who didn't order will see the boxes and want some. Instant gratification :) and instant sales for the troop!
